Almonds really are a super food, aren’t they? Kind of like coconut. You can use them in so many ways, and they are a great and healthy snack. But, sometimes I get tired of eating them plain. I love the flavored kinds you can buy at the store, though they are not as healthy.
Recently, I had a greek yogurt that came with some candied almonds to put on top… and let me tell you, it was delicious! The idea was so simple that I thought, “I bet I could make something like this at home.”
They turned out great on the first try. That doesn’t happen very often for me when I’m making things up, so I was pretty thrilled. And, it’s a 3 ingredient recipe that takes less than 10 minutes to throw together. Pretty awesome. I will definitely be making these on the regular.
